Bottled. A black beer with a decent off-white head. Sweet milky chocolate and licquorice in the silky inviting aroma, The taste has good roasty malts around a smooth chocolatey body. Nice alcohol hit. Good licquorice and fossil fuel flavours. Very smooth and drinkable. Some milikiness also. Very nice indeed.

(Bottled) Clear, dark cola brown with a smallish, lemonadey and quickly fading head. Quite strong, roasty, smoky-licoricey and milky aroma. Salty-licoricey, lightly roasty and smoky, sweetish-malty flavor with low bitterness. Alcohol is completely hidden. Medium-bodied, smooth and slicky palate with quite low carbonation. A quite enjoyable, sweetish and a bit cough-medicine-like stout. Also reminds me of A.Le Coq Jõuluporter.

Pours a dark brown. I didn’t see much of a head at all. Smells deep and smoky. Tastes explodes with roasted malt, and dark chocolate. Has a very long finish that seems to get sweeter with every second.

Aroma id roasted malt, coffee, and very sweet licorice. Flavour is sweet. Reminds me of a very sweet rum cake. Its bready, and full bodied. Very smooth palate, clean roasty finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black, with a small, creamy light tan head. Smells of mild roast, creamy chocolate, and dark malts. Get some dark fruits in there too. The flavor is medium-bodied, good dose of creamy chocolate, some dark fruit, and a larger malt presence. The roast really isnt hat noticeable in the in the flavor, but it seems to be pretty balanced. Has kind of a nutty flavor in the aftertaste, which turns into chocolate. Not bad.
